1. Chronicles of Riddick - it was the only thing on and we were too lazy to get out of bed to find a dvd.
2. They live
3. Star wars: a new hope
4. Supernatural: the anime series (I know it's not a movie but it's cool and helping me through the teething fits)

New to me movies are in bold

1. The Princess Bride-- Still holds up quite well, if anything, I think it's better than when I first saw it. Wesley!!!
2. No Strings Attached- Ashton Kutcher/Natalie Portman. I liked him better than her, which is weird. AK should stick to rom-coms, he does them well, even if he's a tool in the real world.
3. The Truth about Cats and Dogs-- hmmm, nostalgically cute, but it really isn't a good movie when you get down to it. Garofalo is adorable, and Uma is such a newbie in this one.
4. Up  Gah, I love this movie, even with commercial interruptions. Saw it with two friends who hadn't seen it before, and they really liked it.

5 Erasing David
6 Live and Let Die
7 El Superstar: The Unlikely Rise of Juan Frances
8 Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

10 Our Idiot Brother
Strangely dull and formulaic. And no-one warned me that Steve "Talentless Fuck" Coogan was in it. It so very nearly got abandoned when his name turned up in the opening credits.
11 Thunderbirds are GO
CR whisked back to childhood 1966 upon discovery of this on Netflix. Afternoon housework duly abandoned.

How was this?  I am not a huge anime fan, but I love Supernatural.  Is it fairly true to the show or is it really anime?

1. Love Actually
2. Swing time - this was a good hangover film. Light, funny, and enjoyable.
3. Super 8 - I enjoyed this, although there were some lighting effects that bothered me... but I'm not sure if it was/is a flaw with my tv or something on the dvd.
4. Bridesmaids - Okay, admission time! I've never been much for the Judd Apatow movies, they've just been "meh!" for me. But, I got a quite a few laughs outta this one and kinda enjoyed it. And, as others have said, the friendship between Annie and Lillian is what sealed the movie for me. I've loved Melissa McCarthy since she was on Gilmore Girls, she's nearly always hilarious. And Chris O'Dowd was just adorable.
5. Red riding hood - This movie was pants. I sat through it but it was like the Brothers Grimm and Twilight had a baby and this was the result.

It's pretty good so far. They have some original stories that weren't part of the show. The producers of the show got Kripke's blessing and have retold stories from seasons 1 & 2. It's got Jensen and Jared doing voices for the episodes. The animation is bit stylized (it is produced and aired in Japan after all) but they seem to keeping it truer to the Supernatural style.

1. Limitless
2. Godzilla vs. Mothra
3. The Andromeda Strain
4. Tron: Legacy (This was a very pretty picture. Jeff Bridges CGI face annoyed me a little bit, but overall I found it to be some great special effect eye candy and entertaining.)

MK seemed to have an unusual and out-of-character desire to see this with me at the cinema. Normally, she hates explosive CGI-fests like this promised to be (and was!). Then in the opening sequence, who walks on screen but Josh "Sawyer" Holloway. Suddenly everything became clear.....Good job I ended up seeing the movie by myself, otherwise we may have had to walk out after 10 minutes
13 Little Voice
Loved this first time I watched it shortly after its release, second time round it felt forced and somewhat hackneyed

1) One Week
2) D.E.B.S.

I don't know why, but I really like this movie.  I think if the leads in the movie weren't 2 women falling in love, this would have been a decent sized hit.  It is just a fun little movie.

6. Harry Potter and the deathly hallows, part 2 - My criticisms from when I saw it in the theaters still holds. I still enjoyed but the missed opportunities still bother me.

14 The Auteur
Crazy fucked-up mockumentary about a 'famous' porn director who is being honoured in his hometown. Lots of nekkidness and genuinely-LOL moments. Netflix serves up another ace.
15 Short Circuit
Still lots of fun after all these years, and some of Ally Sheedy's glances continue to create certain happy stirrings in my undercrackers
16 Personal Services
I'd forgotten just how effing good Julie Waters is as the suburban brothel owner whose establishment caters for and satisfies elderly gentlemen's kinks. Based - far less than loosely - on the real life exploits of Cynthia Payne

2. Godzilla vs. Mothra
3. The Andromeda Strain
4. Tron: Legacy
5. Rise of the Planet of the Apes - The director must have stolen the Tim Burton script and used it for toilet paper as inspiration.  Andy Serkis was amazing!  Other than a few funky CGI spots (which can be easily forgiven), it was quite impressive and easy to suspend belief while watching.
